Opis produktu


Shortlisted for the Tolkien Society Best Book Award

John Garth has written excellently on Tolkien's formative wartime experiences in Tolkien and the Great War. [The Worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien] now brings near-nerdish knowledge to bear on other parts of Tolkien's thought-universe, investigating other influences that molded Middle-earth...[An] erudite and exhaustive exploration of Tolkien's compelling creation. -Derek Turner, Chronicles

One of the most valuable books out there for understanding Tolkien.---David Bratman, Kalimac's Corner

John Garth's beautifully illustrated volume, The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien, reconstructs and theorizes Tolkien's earthly sources for Middle-earth. He leaves breadcrumbs for scholars of all stripes. Whether your curiosities lie in Switzerland or South Africa, in the Aeneid or The Great Wave off Kanagawa, something is bound to reel you in.---Bécquer Seguín, Public Books

Generations of critics have studied Tolkien's sources in minute detail, but none has integrated information and insights with visuals as elegantly as John Garth has done in the lavishly illustrated The Worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien. ---Sandra Miesel, Catholic World Report

John Garth's masterful study belongs on every Middle-earth scholar's shelf. Encyclopedic in its scope, it melds Tolkien's biography with his imagined worlds. From Morgoth to the Mewlips, no sub-created stone is left unturned. Lavishly illustrated with photographs, maps of both real and imagined lands, and art and illustrations by Tolkien and others, many hitherto unpublished, Garth's guidebook to the geography and history of Middle-earth is boggling in its breadth and depth. Its command of scholarship enhances it immeasurably. Each page illuminates with insights and dazzles with details. Time and again, the reader will marvel at how much knowledge Garth fits into 208 pages. The large (eight by ten inches) format amplifies the impact of the illustrations, whose reproductions here are of the highest quality. The two-column layout enhances readability. A weighty tome at two and three-quarters pounds, The Worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien does not skimp on words or pictures. . . . In all, Garth's command of the life and works of the maker of Middle-earth make this book an essential work for those who wish to increase their understanding of the author. Tolkien scholarship is much the richer because of it.---Mike Foster, Mythlore

The leading Tolkien critic of the present generation . . . Garth . . . fills this new book with beautiful, opulent maps and photographs that animate the lush atmosphere of Tolkien's real and conjured worlds and yield great visual pleasure. At the same time Garth provides deep access to Tolkien's craft.-- "Choice"

The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien: The Places That Inspired Middle-Earth by John Garth is an extensive and fairly exhaustive examination of the internal and external influences which Tolkien brought to the creation of Middle-Earth . . . [T]the most authoritative book you are likely to find.---Charles Packer, Review Graveyard

A fascinating, gorgeously illustrated and thought-provoking examination of the landscapes, cities and architecture that inspired Tolkien during his lifelong creation of Middle-earth. . . . Garth, a journalist as well as a Tolkien scholar, proves an exceptional guide to Middle-earth . . . [A] masterful book.---Elizabeth Hand, Washington Post

An extensive new study.---Vanessa Thorpe, The Observer

Five stars. This wonderful book is a collectable must. Packed to the covers with glorious illustrations, maps and photos old and modern, it's a scholarly work of art. . . . Heart-warming as well as revealing, it shows there are still surprises hidden in Tolkien's books.---Jon Wise, Weekend Sport

What John Garth adds to the ever-proliferating pile of Tolkien-related media is a careful eye and steady step. [In The Worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien, ] [h]e explores the intersections between this world and that of Tolkien's 'legendarium'. He traces inspirations from what the author saw, and how they may likely have evolved into what can be gleaned from his tales, letters, drafts, and sketches. . . . Whether new to Middle-Earth or a veteran pilgrim, anyone will learn much in this book.---John L. Murphy, New York Journal of Books

Every page brings forth the elegiac tone of JRR Tolkien's work. . . . Irresistible. . . . [A] beautiful book. . . . Made me realise the impact that Tolkien has had on my life.---Tom Chivers, The Times

[The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien] is beautifully designed and produced . . . It's a magical book, one is both intricately researched and filled with gems of wonder.---Lorena Carrington, The Bone Lantern

Filled with beautiful photographs and drawings this book is both visually and mentally stunning. A great way to pass the time especially if you are a fan.-- "Cassandra Ms Place blog"

Tolkien scholar Garth, with the cooperation of the author's estate, introduces fellow Middle-earth fans to the locales, in Britain and throughout the world, that inspired settings in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and other Tolkien titles.-- "Publishers Weekly"
